The Tudela Factory, located in Tudela Veguín, a locality within the municipality of Oviedo, dates back to 1898, being considered as Spain’s first cement factory. Currently, this plant produces construction aggregates, steel lime, and white cement.

The 3D laser scanning work focused on the crushing plant, with the aim of obtaining precise information to serve as a basis for a subsequent design modification in the discharge chute of one of the material transport belts from the adjacent quarry. Likewise, the ovality of the trommel was intended to be verified, in order to ensure its correct operation.

3D scanning in industrial plants is a technique used to create precise three-dimensional models of a factory’s facilities and machinery. This allows engineers and technicians to analyze and optimize the plant’s performance, detect potential problems, and better plan improvements and maintenance, as was the case in this instance.

The facilities are going to undergo modifications, so the new elements must fit precisely into the existing installation. Therefore, it is decided to use 3D laser scanning, as it allows us to verify the location of various structural elements, pipes, machinery, etc.

Dogram has extensive experience in 3D digitization of industrial environments, ensuring the quality of point clouds and the confidential treatment of data. Many thanks to Cementos Tudela Veguín for trusting us with this project, it has been a pleasure.
